Leak in outdoor drain running under concrete...


I have a 4# drain pipe that drains a large concrete patio. The drain pipe is leaking. Is there a way to re-line the pipe instead of digging it up and replacing it entirely? It would mean busting out 8-10 feet of concrete...

Would a smaller size pipe work?
If it would, you possibly could slip it thru the existing one.
If it's not a straight run, a slightly smaller size rubber hose may work as well. It can be found in just about any size, but the bigger diameter stuff can get rather pricey. It would probably last for a few years anyway.

yes, it can probably be lined - if there are not too many turns such as p traps
